Improving the efficiency of GPS tracking systems

This year James Biagioni, Computer Science, worked cooperatively with Troy Hernandez, Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Together they have developed an end-to-end framework for improving the cost efficiency of online GPS tracking systems. The system enables a trace consumer to receive a continuous and internally consistent location trace.

As a result of this collaboration Troy is presenting a poster entitled “Thrifty Tracking: Smooth and Accurate Online GPS Tracing with Low Data Uplink Utilization” at the NSF annual meeting and represents CTS in the video/poster competition. James and Troy have also submitted a technical paper to the 10th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems, the premier conference for research in sensor systems.
